Introducing our new trustee

kina-advisory0001We are delighted to announce the appointment of a new trustee at the African Gifted Foundation, Rosalind Kainyah MBE.

Rosalind is Founder and Managing Director at Kina Advisory.  She has held senior positions with Tullow Oil plc and De Beers and advised governments on policy and legislative matters.

Rosalind’s journey with the African Gifted Foundation goes back to the very beginning. Whilst at Tullow, Rosalind was integral to providing the core funding for AGF’s extremely successful science summer schools that took place in Uganda and Ghana for hundreds of children from across Africa.

In October 2016, Rosalind visited the African Science Academy in Ghana. Students and staff alike were greatly inspired by her powerful speech about her life and work. When asked what the future holds for her, Rosalind said that she is passionate about working in education. We are honoured that Rosalind has chosen the African Gifted Foundation as an avenue to pursue this passion. We look forward to her continued support and enthusiasm in the future.
